FIve For Friday

Today I'm joining in with Five for Friday since I haven't posted for so long! These pics aren't from this week though, they are before we went on holidays. 
This photo was from quite a while ago. We were representing teen numbers in different ways - with bundling sticks, tent cards (which when pulled apart shows that 16 is 10 and 6) and with the 20 bead string of place value beads (made using a pipe cleaner and beads).
This was from the first week or two of school this year (you can get the Rosie's Hen pictures here).The kids sequenced the pictures and then wrote what happened during each part.
The string went around Rosie's leg and then the flour dropped on the fox's head and the fox ran to the next section. 
Rosie went under the bee hive and the fox went in the trailer and knocked the bee hive and the bees chased the fox away.
I took this idea from Sparkle Box. The kids had a lot of fun making the settings and writing labels for We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
Since we were learning about healthy animal habitats in Science, we had a go at making a simple butterfly habitat in Art (I got this idea from another teacher in my grade level). We made flowers for butterflies. The brown wool down the bottom is meant to be roots for the plant. The kids got to choose the materials they wanted to use. I like how the second one used sheer fabric and paper doilies for the butterfly. 
This one is just showing off some of my beanie babies! The kids are just loving the beanie baby reading strategies I'm using this year!
